I bit the bullet and picked up a PS3 last month, never had any real desire before to get one, I have a 360 and most games that came out on both I have for the 360, I am struggling to find a game I want to play for it though :( The only games I wanted were Duck Tales and Twisted Metal. I am just so not into these games were you roam round and round and round for hours/days. I am more looking for quick arcade type games, did anything like this come out on the PS3?
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

Some did, PS2 is way better for them.

Vanquish was on 360 as well. Great game though.
Yes, you're right. Possibly also on PC, too? Not sure why I remembered it as a PS3 exclusive - maybe it just feels like a PS3 type of game.

Get the "Play TV" and then you can use a PS3 as a Freeview PVR. Then, there's the Blu Ray player as well. :lol:

I can only really think that things like the latest batch of Yakuza games or maybe some of the Japanese shoot 'em ups would interest myself. But - that's just me.

Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day Is a quick 2d arcade game only disc release I can think off, maybe the Midway collection.

Heavenly Sword is short scrolling beat em up
Namco light gun collection with Razing Storm, Dead Storm Pirates and Time Crisis 4.

Micky Mouse is a good update of the Megadrive game

Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 are all excellent exclusives. There is also Yakuza Dead Souls which is a zombie shooter and is nowhere near as good as the main series. Still, it includes a ton of content and charm that the main games in the series have, so its still fun (at least for me). There is also Yakuza Kenzan! if your into imports. Its completely in Japanese but its an absolutely brilliant story lead samurai game. Probably my favourite game for the system.
